Launch of Soyuz ST with Pléiades 1, 4 Elisa Satellites & Chilean SSOT

The second Soyuz ST from Kourou in French Guiana lifted off today at 02:04 UTC. The rocket is carrying France’s Pléiades 1 and the Chilean SSOT — both of which are Earth observation satellites developed for civilian and defense image-gathering, along with four French Elisa micro-satellite demonstrators for defense-related electronic intelligence gathering (ELINT).
